Easy answer for me. I received an early birthday card from one of my favorite aunts. In it she included a black-and-white picture of me. It was taken when I was about 3-years-old in my family's home in Omaha, Nebraska. I was sitting in my little maple rocking chair, wearing a plaid dress with a Peter Pan collar, brown Mary Jane shoes, and anklets. I was holding my orange Persian kitty, Mitzi, on my lap.
Believe it or not, I remember the dress, shoes and rocking chair. The picture was taken over 50 years ago. I love it.
